Solomon

Barred Owl

Solomon arrived at our center in February 2009 as a transfer from a rehabilitation hospital in Florida. As a young owl, Solomon had been hit by a vehicle which caused a fracture to his wing and severe trauma to his left eye. While his wing was successfully repaired, his loss of vision impacted his ability to successfully hunt in the wild.  

Did You Know?

Barred Owls are named for the long vertical bars that can be seen on their chest feathers.

Sponsor Solomon

Symbolically adopt one or more of our resident animals for yourself or as a gift to someone you love. Adoptions help us to provide professional care for our ambassador animals including veterinary visits, enclosure enhancements, high-quality food and enrichment.

We rely on donations from the community to provide the best possible rescue, care and rehabilitation to Long Island’s Wildlife.
